Wind Mitigation

Ensure strong winds are no match for your dwelling.

A wind mitigation report informs the insurance company of a home’s construction in order to determine its stability in the event of strong winds. In 2006, Citizens Insurance, one of the largest property insurers in Florida, requested a 45% rate increase for wind insurance. Other insurers took similar action.
